APPLY NOW to host a Block Party ft. the AirStage in your very own neighborhood!
What is a block party?
This summer, Breck Music in partnership with BreckCreate wants to bring music and art directly to the people of Breckenridge and beyond via the Breck Music Block Parties ft. the AirStage. These small, community gatherings will occur across the various communities of Breckenridge with an approximate capacity of 50 - 100 attendees; capacities will be determined by current public health guidelines. Breck Music will program these parties with excellent local and regional talent and BreckCreate will program the art. Events will be free, rain-or-shine.
However, we need your help: Will you help us discover great locations? We also are looking for a few good folks to help us throw the Block Parties. If you consider yourself an entertainer extraordinaire and feel you have the perfect spot to accommodate our big rig, then read on!
The following application will help us evaluate potential sites for neighborhood Block Parties. Criteria will include but is not limited to the following:
- Width and height clearance to access the location from any main road
- Relatively level footprint for parking the trailer that can support almost 5 tons
- Space for the truck and trailer to maneuver into, out of, and around footprint with little to no obstructions
- Special permitting requirements and noise ordinances
- Overall vibe befitting a community gathering, access to great views, open space for audience to enjoy safely with excellent sight lines to the stage, free of hazards
- ADA accessibility for attendees
- Representative diversity of Summit County population
This application also will help us get to know you! Are you a social butterfly capable of drumming up excitement and participation for your very own AirStage block party? Think you can enlist five to seven additional volunteers to help organize and spread the word? If your neighborhood has an HOA or is under the oversight of a neighborhood association, will you go to bat for us? Finally, parties will be free of charge, with no financial obligation from hosts. If hosts and volunteers are willing, Breck Music, a non-profit organization, would welcome help with fundraising efforts.
